We have a regular gathering at Clearleft every Thursday at 4pm. It’s our front-end pow-wow (there’s a corresponding “UX Laundromat” on Thursdays at 3pm, and every Friday at 4pm there’s a “Design …Thing”).
It’s basically like a design crit, but for code. People show what they’ve been working, whether it’s client work or personal projects. It leads to some great cross-pollination of ideas and solutions.
I wrap it up by going through links I’ve tagged with “frontend”.
Everyone’s welcome to come along, whether they’re a front-end developer or not. If any clients are in the office, they’re invited along too.
